It’s also one of only a few substances that acts as a thermal breeder, in theory creating enough new fuel as it breaks down to sustain a high-temperature chain reaction indefinitely. And it would be virtually impossible for the by-products of a thorium reactor to be used by terrorists or anyone else to make nuclear weapons.
